Hey so. If you're an artist, or you know an artist who might be interested, I'm working on a thing to make commissions easier, safer, and just generally nicer. It would be really helpful at the stage I'm in to have some artists to show what I have to and get early feedback. RT+

also happy to answer any questions over DMs on here.

But the general idea is having a space for commissions that provides safety and trust for both artists and clients that artists themselves will literally own and control :)

@zkat so, kind of like what commissio was trying to do before the staff couldn't do it anymore?

@zkat I'm interested but don't have much experience with commissions.

@squeakypancakes I'm specifically looking for artists who have done commission work and would have concrete feedback on how something reflects their workflow (or potential workflow)

@zkat I'm a potter & I do sometimes take commissions. Happy to offer feedback.

@zkat I'm a part-time professional illustrator, I'd be interested

@zkat oh neat! trello feels like a workaround, to be honest. would be interested in trying other things

@heatherhorns this is a lot more than trello! I can tell you about the plans if you want. I'd love to chat about the idea and get a sense of whether this is something that would be worthwhile!

@heatherhorns we can just do DMs on here if you don’t mind me spamming you? I mostly just wanna tell you what’s there/what the plans are and get a sense of whether it would be worth paying a fee for :)
